Health: A right for all
In poor countries, people die because they have no access to medication, or their vulnerable situation is exploited for unethical drug testing. Even in rich countries, treatments are increasingly rationed because the healthcare systems are running out of funds. The innovation system, which is based on patents and short-term profits, is not working properly anymore. With its pharmaceutical giants Roche and Novartis as well as a compliant government, Switzerland bears a special responsibility in this situation.
There are solutions - it is simply a question of political will.
